Re: The Environment....


People are killing the earth and unless every nation starts doing something.....
If every country was like the US..this Earth would be dying much sooner. China is now sending up pollution every bit as bad as the US and it will get worse.

First we need to stop making the remaining farm land in to congrete jungles.

My hubby's wee car gets 40 to 43mpg..his motorcycle around 50mpg.
I had to sell my wee car for a Van because of my health. But I bought the most safe and the one with the best gas mileage. It only gets 30mpg though. Hubby has to go to work everyday. But we only use the Van if I have to go somewhere or need to get 5 or more things or stops in town. We do without until then.
Changed the light bulbs to those that only used 10Watts but gives out 75 to 95 Watts of light.
We buy as much of our food from local farmers. Saves how much pollution we send to the land fill.
We burn all paper..though only on cool rainy days.
We do not use any toxic chemicals on the farm. Would be much easier to use Roundup..but it is so bad for the earth.
There are some many things people can do but don't.

Every little thing can make a difference.

Re: The Environment....


Believe it or not it's this very issue that brought me to paganism. I've always had a reverence and love of nature. I've always thought use human beans were doing more harm to her than good. So Here I am.

so far we've changed to cf bulbs and bought a car that gets 4x better millage than our truck. We are also trying to get away from the city and all the consumerism. have our own homestead, raise our own food, and do it as sustainable as we can.

its a small step but if everyone went that far we'd start to make progress. OTOH the county would have more people.. There goes the neighborhood . lol
